"Love this board" 12/31/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton T6 Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Light-weight, Fast, Stiff
  • Cons:  Dampening Pads Like to peel,

Experience:   I did a lot of research before buying this board. To be honest most of the research scared me a bit. Many places said that this board will Kick Your Ass, it will buck you off or Advanced Riders only so on and so forth. So I don't consider myself an Advanced rider probably somewhere in the Intermediate range I ride about 35-40 days a year. With that said when I first strapped on the board you definately notice the stiffness before you even hit the run. It only took 2 turns to understand what this board is all about, it likes to go fast and it likes to hold an edge. I felt very comfortable bombing hills (very damp ride) carving high speed, riding powder (nice float) and taking it in the trees. If you are somewhat of a technical rider this board won't let you down and you should not be afraid of it. My only complaint is those dampening pads, they like to peel off. You'd think for as much as the board cost they would have figured out how to address the issue.

Had to send this board to warranty because of the dampening pads. They are sending a T7. Hopefully it's as good as the T7

"Cuts snow/ice like butter" 1/10/2012
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton T6 Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Plenty of pop, Stiff, easy to carve into bad ice patches, Lightweight, picks up speed fast
  • Cons:  Too stiff, tougher for landing jumps, Almost impossible to do butters, Cosmetic top easily scratched

Experience:   This was my 3rd board, got a bit shorter than previous ones to be more agile. It is super stiff, so it's effortless to carve and cut into snow/choppy ice...hardly ever makes my legs sore. The board does the work for you. Because of this I was able to fly over sketchy terrain like nothing and go very fast. Since then I changed to more of a park board (sierrascope) down to a feel of 3, instead of 8. I find that a more soft/flexible board makes landing jumps MUCH easier. I don't miss the acceleration as much because ski patrol will tell me to slow down anyways. A softer board works my legs out more, but I am used to it now. I was never able to do wheelies and butters with the T6 because of its stiffness. But it seems easier on the half pipe.

"Believe the hype don't fear the hype!" 2/3/2014
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (1) No

  • Name: Burton T6 Snowboard
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Fast, Precise like a guided missile , Fast!
  • Cons:  Very stiff, Not for the park,

Experience:   I was really excited the first time I took this out. But also a bit apprehensive. Everyone talks about how stiff and unforgiving this is. It was awesome! This is not a beginner board for learning on the bunny slope and it's not made for buttering. I came off a reverse crew which is lots of fun. This is not that. This is stiff it's got no give you will not be riding out the tail. But if you like big mountain, if you like the woods this thing is a Lazer guided missile. It is presise and it is fast. No one will touch you on this thing. They will be sucking on your crud. It turns on a dime. You think it and this board will follow. I love it. Still keep something else in your quiver when you want to mess around or hit the park.

  • Name: Burton T6 Snowboard
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Clean graffix design,
  • Cons:  Color scheme could be better,

Experience:   This board is stiff and turns incredibly quick. If you want to fly down the mountain under control, give this the board a try. I bought it last year and I am very happy with it.

"Love it" 5/1/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton T6 Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Fast, Stable, Very responsive once I got used to it

Experience:   I've enjoyed this board, been quite a lot of fun to use in NZ and AU. It's stiff and I've found it quite responsive. I got a 'damaged' version, the sticker was slightly out of place. Nil damage since, and it's traveled a bit. Amazingly nil damage. Except when I went over some very thin snow during spring in AU and scraped it like crazy but a good wax seemed to have fixed that. I'd recommend it. This season I'm tossing up on getting a Sierra board though.

"Face Melter" 2/28/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton T6 Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  Stability, Grip, Speed
  • Cons:  top sheet cracked,

Experience:   I got my T6 on a whim - I had an extra concert ticket that I traded with someone who worked at Burton in Vermont. He offered me any Burton board I wanted, so clearly I opted for a higher-end board that I'd never spend the money on myself. Turns out this was the best trade I've ever made. The T6 plain owns the mountains. I viewed myself as an intermediate rider, but this stick definitely has me feeling advanced. I'm confident enough to bomb down the East Coast ice because the T6 holds its edge and stays stable no matter how fast I'm going. I also get a little stiffy every time I take it into the glades for some powder runs because of how smoothly it floats, and how responsive it is. I just think left and the next thing I know, I've avoided the tree I was bearing down on. I'm not a big park guy, so I can't say how it will handle kickers and rails, but it definitely conquers everything else the mountain can throw at it. I even go down moguls with my T6, and I used to avoid them like the plague when I was riding my Palmer Honey Pro. The only con I've discovered is purely cosmetic - the top sheet on my board has a bunch of spider-vein-cracks. I don't know whether it's from normal wear and tear or getting beat up a bit in the glades, but she's just not as pretty as she was when I first got her. If you've got the money and you're looking to ride the best, don't think twice. The T6 is just what the doctor ordered.

"Most stable board eve" 2/20/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton T6 Snowboard
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  Stable, Responsive, Fast
  • Cons:  Hard to handle in wet Powder, Pricey, Rubber pads come off easily

Experience:   I got this board as an upgrade after I messed the rail on my 09 Custom-X , the T6 is noticeably faster and more stable. You can easily bomb your way down on almost all runs. If you like to ride hard and fast with the accuracy of an F16 this is your board

Comments & Questions



ttmahdy
I particepated in a 24 hour snowboarding race , towards the end of the day there was an 8" crack deep into the core in the tail of the board. Didn't any jumps bigger than 6ft and landed them all and the board cracked!!! Sent it back to Burton hope that the warranty can take care of that.

"Monster stiffy" 12/27/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton T6 Snowboard
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  extremely stiff design, you can plow through just about anything,
  • Cons:  extremely stiff design, leather cushions can peel,

Experience:   I upgraded from a Burton Custom to the T6 and OMG it's friggin stiff! It's a powerhouse. The aluminum honeycomb design is amazingly tight and light. The board gives you a feeling like you can plow through just about any pow. Some may see the stiffness as a downside though. The board literally fights back if you don't push it hard enough and you definitely will feel it in your knees.

"Great board, but kill the flaps" 12/23/2010
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton T6 Snowboard
  • Skill:  Intermediate
  • Pros:  speed, stiff (i like this style), very light
  • Cons:  flaps come off easy,

Experience:   I bought this board last year and it's awesome. Feels faster than the custom X. Stiffness is about the same in my experience. Onl problem (minor) is that th plastic flaps under the bindings started peeling off. No biggie overall, i just ripped them off, but initially made annoying flapping sounds while going down the mountain.

Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Burton T6 Snowboard
  • Skill:  Advanced
  • Pros:  fast, holds edge, stiff
  • Cons:  stiff, dampening pads r prone to peel,

Experience:   i was extremely happy when i tried my new t6 out this morning. Then i noticed about three hours into riding tht the dampening pads for smooth ride were peeling up! but thankfully because of burton customer service i can send the board in to get it replaced or fixed. I am very pleased by tht although it is a huge pain.

I had the same problem, but some descent glue did the job. I've rid like this for three years (I have the 2008 model) and there is really no problem.
